“Deodorant is often one of those useful products, like toothpaste, that is a staple in your toiletry bag but doesn’t have to be luxurious or exciting.

The rose scent is so pure and clean, like a seductive French fragrance, and the gentle formula leaves my blemishes so pampered. If you doubt whether your deodorant can satisfy you, you haven’t tried this one. ” – Tara Rasmusliterary beauty

I love the fresh scent — and the fact that none of my t-shirts are yellowed anymore. “– Lauren Carusofashion editor and creative consultant

In general, I’m a pretty sweaty person, so I also struggle with natural deodorants. wet (sorry) under my arms, but this one went smoothly and still is. Unless I’m doing something seriously active, I don’t feel the need to reapply during the day, which I usually do with natural deodorants.” – Caitlin Clark, contributing editor

Meow Meow Tweet Deodorant Cream
“I’m not the kind of woman who drops a thin sweat. I’m a thick sweater and I have yellow underarm stains to prove it.

Then this beautiful little magnesium and baking soda deodorant tube arrived on my doorstep and everything changed. Not only does it control my perspiration, but it smells great and is – as I had hoped – no more yellow. I’ve been wearing light colored shirts and have been left out ever since. ” – Megan McIntyreliterary beauty

The other plus is that it doesn’t run down my arms after sweating during a workout (yes, lots of other brands have done this and even stained my clothes!), it doesn’t burn my skin. mine and it doesn’t have an overpowering scent.
“My husband and teenage son are huge fans too and that’s saying something! My favorite scent is the Third Rose Water with rose, mandarin, violet, and cedar root but my husband likes it. Cedar Flora Fragrance with cedar, white musk, jasmine, and guaiac wood. It’s certainly on the more expensive side, but it lasts a long time and if it works, it’s worth it. It’s also one of the best looking IMOs on the market. ” – Sacha Strebe, deputy editor
Crystalline Mineral Deodorant
“When my sister first introduced this age-old pharmacy brand many years ago, I was skeptical, to say the least. I went through the entire range of natural deodorants and found myself with few viable options (thanks to my sensitivities to baking soda and galangal.) But this affordable roll-on deodorant has become a no-brainer. become my daily goal. I love the smell of lavender, how gentle it is on my skin, and the fact that it really works.

I usually keep one in my bag and another on my desk for a quick quick look on particularly bad days. ” – Lourdes Avila Uribe, contributing editor
Fat and the Moon acne cream for sensitive skin
“I have very sensitive skin and in the summer, when I shaved my armpits regularly, other natural deodorants caused frantic flare-ups and rashes. Eep! This cream is lightly scented with vetiver and basil (which I love) and doesn’t have baking soda which can be a big culprit for breakouts with natural deo. It’s moisturizing and never leaves white marks – I’ve tried so many others but always come back to this product. Love and cherish!” – Lauren Zielinski, contributing editor
